How to Use Essential Oils
Updated: Feb 24, 2022
There is a wide variety of uses of essential oils day to day. My absolute favorite way to use essential oils is by diffusing them into the air through a diffuser! Oils work super-fast in the body! It takes 22 seconds for the molecules of the oils to reach the brain! Wow that's fast! It takes 2 minutes, and they will be found in your bloodstream. By 20 minutes they will affect EVERY cell in the body!
By putting the oils on topically, that means putting the essential oils right on your skin. You can put them on your feet, wrists, temples...wherever you need support! But watch out, avoid the eye area!
Many essential oils are safe and beneficial to use directly on the skin
Place oil directly on the desired area and massage in, repeat as desired
Apply on pulse points, and thin skin like temples, behind the ears, back of neck, wrist or chest
Rub oils on the feet, hands, and spine for specific needs
If you are using a "hot oil" you will want to dilute with a carrier oil first
Using the oils aromatically means diffusing them through a diffuser! You will add water and about 1-2 drops of your favorite essential oils into the diffuser and diffuse into the air! By diffusing oils is the fastest way to get oils into your system! Who would of thought that would be the fastest way into the body!!!
